The Black Stone: Stories for Lovecraftian Summonings is a new anthology of weird fiction, now hitting the streets. Edited by Raffaele Pezzella, the anthology features a reprint of “Threnody,” one of my earliest and creepiest short stories. You’ll also find tales of terror by 26 other noteworthy authors, including David Agranoff, Glynn Owen Barrass, Ramsey Campbell, Edward Morris, Konstantine Paradias, Pete Rawlik, Brian M. Sammons, Lucy Snyder, Sarah Walker, and more.
From the cover: “The tales of H. P. Lovecraft touched on primal fears of the dark unknown, with great effect, and now, nearly a century on, the spirit of the Lovecraftian tale is still with us, courtesy of a group of literary explorers willing to forge through the dark matter of our hostile home and write of their experiences and travails in the lightless places. These 27 epistles of horror and weirdness are presented as a testament to the fact that, as much as we’ve discovered since Howard Phillips Lovecraft’s time, there are still many more unknowns waiting to be discovered.”
